Pat Benatar

The 1980s were a spectacular time for the music industry. Technical innovations were introduced which greatly impacted the sound, deliverance and genres of music. The synthesizer generated entirely new subgenres and altered existing ones forever. The advent of MTV caused a spike in music video production. Among the icons who arose was one fearless female with a trained mezzo-soprano voice who cultivated a tremendous following of loyal rock-and- roll fans. Pat Benatar came to true celebrity in the early ‘80s, with beautiful ballads and rebellious rock hits like “We Belong”, “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” and “Invincible”. Her legendary vocals demanded equality in a genre dominated by men, empowering audiences around the globe – especially young women. With a reputation that includes four consecutive Grammy awards (and nine nominations) in the “Best Female Rock Performance” category, the rebel (with a cause) ingrained herself in rock-and- roll history. Pat Benatar, along with her husband and long-time musical partner Neil Giraldo, tours annually every summer. As a musician, producer and writer, Giraldo has an equally impeccable reputation in the music industry with a vast catalogue of solo hits and collabs. Together they took the rock scene by force and even became the first female and first guitarist to be featured on MTV. After three decades, the celebrity couple is still selling out auditoriums around the world.

White Water Bay at Six Flags Fiesta Texas
17000 W I-10, (210) 697-5050,
For double the fun, you’ll thank yourself for hitting up Fiesta Texas. Have your fun on the regular coasters at night when it’s slightly cooler, but first beat the heat at White Water Bay. There’s a variety of water rides and attractions, such as the Bahama Blaster, Bermuda Triangle, Big Bender and more! Of course, you can’t forget about the Texas-shaped pool, nicknamed the Lone Star Lagoon, and the massive Tornado. Seriously, you’ll be sorry if you don’t stop by before summer ends.
